Aurora British SE-5 Scout - White Rectangle Issue, 1/48, 103-69

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$65   

Very rare version and the rarest of all Aurora SE-5s. Note that the rectangular background for the oval 'Famous Fighters' logo is white and not the more common yellow. The two issues are identical other than the background color for the lower-right rectangle. The hardbox is dated 1956 with the original Jim Cox box art but with the 1957 oval 'Famous Fighters' logo. The original rectangle 'Northern Lights'; logo has been neatly blotted out with a white rectangle of the same size. The fact that the price is still 69 cents (as the original issue) means this issue is very late 1956 or very early '57. Molded in gloss olive green and black. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. NOTE: there is a short tape tear on the lower long side measuring 1/2" x 1/4" and two dark, translucent tape stains (1" x 3/8") on the upper long side.

Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Please NOTE that the box displays better than the 'fair++' grade is because the box has a thin border of masking tape along the lower sides.

Sign up for the Hotlist.

SALE!! Dated 1963. Nicely molded kit that was popular for decades. Feature great Jo Kotula box art, pilot and cockpit, detailed engine, ground crew member and ground display base with wheel chocks. Molded in tan and black plastic. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. This is part of the famous Aurora WWI series of 1/48 scale aircraft. The series began in 1956 and Aurora added new kits into the early 1960s. The line proved incredibly popular, so these kits were included in the 'mold upgrade' in the 1970s before Aurora went out of business.

Aurora USS Missouri BB-63 Battleship - Young Model Builders Club Issue, 1/600, 774

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

$89   

Early 1970s issue of this famous kit in the YMBC release. It is in the original white 'mailer' box with the factory-glued lithograph 'slick' in 'excellent' condition. Features a one-piece full hull, propeller and rudder detail, rotating turrets, separately molded and positionable 5" secondary battery and quad 40mm AA battery, two float planes and catapults, display stand, name plate and decals. Never started and the parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions. I have good memories of this model - because of the one piece hull, it floated very well. That and the "good" detail made it an ideal platform for BB gun target practice on my friends lake.
